A documentary compiled by Peter Jukes. The highlight of Devon Fagan 's week is Saturday night when he goes to a disco with his mates. This young carpenter, who lives in Tottenham, prepares for a night out with extraordinary thoroughness. 'Everything has got to be right'; his mohican above all. People should look at him and murmur: 'This is no riff-raff off the street. I like the way he looks. I rate that guy.' But racial prejudice gets past the bouncers more easily than he can sometimes.

With Devon Fagan , the manager, the barman, the disc jockey, the lighting man, the bouncer at the Camden Palace - and some of the girls who frequent it.
